What is the Standard 11 Mining Induction for Queensland Mining Industry

The Standard 11 Mining Induction is a Queensland mining industry safety and induction course for anyone transitioning to work in the mining industry.  The Standard 11 training which replaces the original ‘Generic Induction’, was introduced in 2011.

The purpose of this recognised training is to ensure coal mine workers are adequately trained in the ‘Recognised Standard 11, Training in coal mines’, core units of competencies and to meet the health and safety obligations contained in the Coal Mining Act 1999.

Mines focus on safety by implementing risk management processes for everything occurring on site. This reinforced the introduction of a uniform standard of training that would be used across Queensland mining industry. Seven core units of competency make up the Statement of Attainment for Surface and Underground inductions. These are;

Surface

  • RIICOM201D – Communicate in the workplace
  • RIIERR205D – Apply initial response first aid
  • RIIERR302D – Respond to local emergencies and incidents
  • RIIGOV201D – Comply with site work processes/procedures
  • RIIWHS201D – Work safely and follow WHS policies and procedures
  • RIIRIS201D – Conduct local risk control

 

Underground

  • RIICOM201D – Communicate in the workplace
  • RIIERR205D – Apply initial response first aid
  • RIIERR302D – Respond to local emergencies and incidents
  • RIIGOV201D – Comply with site work processes/procedures
  • RIIWHS201D – Work safely and follow WHS policies and procedures
  • RIIRIS201D – Conduct local risk control
  • RIIERR203D – Escape from hazardous situation unaided

 

In addition to completing the induction an on-site verification book is required to be completed within 6 months of the initial training. However, each mine site may have its own induction requirements and it is important to investigate what will be required to work on site. Once the on-site verification has been completed a Statement of Attainment will be issued along with an Identification card. This is valid for 5 years.

Recognition of prior learning is available for individuals who are experienced in the mining industry and can produce evidence of work history in the mining sector. Assessment and interviews to determine the quality of work history may need to be undertaken to evaluate competency.

Mining is considered a high-risk workplace and therefore completion of the standard 11 induction is a requirement for anyone considering working in the mining industry.
